Amex Mexico reactivates on-site volunteering Serve2Gether program involving colleagues as “Environmental Detectives”

April 17, 2023

After the pandemic, Amex Mexico along with long-time partner "Reforestamos Mexico A.C.", reactivated Amex´ Serve2Gether on-site volunteer program through an activity called "Environmental Detectives", in which more than 100 colleagues brought out their inner Sherlock Holmes to search for and identify pests affecting flora and fauna in locations such as the Rowing and Canoeing Track "Virgilio Uribe", in Xochimilco, South of Mexico City.

With the aim of raising awareness of biodiversity in our city, Amex colleagues used the Naturalista app to generate information that will help professionals on identifying different species of flora, fauna, and invasive pests, such as mistletoe, bark worms and ball moss to map their location and distribution so that other relevant institutions can implement environmental conservation programs.

"It is extremely important for American Express to help build a better future for new generations. As part of our ESG strategy and our “Backing Low-Carbon Communities” pillar, we remain committed to our social responsibility goals with these types of initiatives," said Jorge Guevara, VP Corporate Affairs and Communications LAC.

"For Reforestamos it is very gratifying to see the mysticism of teamwork, good humor and commitment in the activities, and Amex’s colleagues always stand out for this and for their enthusiasm, we love their level of dedication and thanks to this we have been able to achieve the goal of generating information about plagued trees, so that the Authority can take actions." Emilio Cruz Sanchez, Director of Advocacy Partnerships at Reforestamos.

The company backs initiatives to contribute to the development of those communities in where we operate and live. We invite you to listen to some of our colleagues regarding the importance of these types of environmental activities.
